Rush Limbaugh’s major career break was when his national radio show debuted in New York City, just weeks before the Republican National Convention in August, 1988.

In 1992 after Bill Clinton won the presidential election, Rush Limbaugh criticized and ridiculed the Clinton family and administration, as well as the Democratic Party. This act had earned him an honorary membership in the Republican Party caucus and made Limbaugh an influential figure on the national political scene.

The Rush Limbaugh Show has been reeling in more subscribers and audience over the years. In 2016, Limbaugh signed a lucrative $400 million contract with Premiere Radio networks and iHeartMedia to continue his talk show for another 4 year.
